Hens night and a week to go!

Mmmm where do I start...

Wedding stuff - we're just trying to sort out flights and schedules of those interstaters to make sure we can get everyone where they need to be with as little stress as possible! Andrew and one of his groomsmen sorted out and picked up their suits yesterday. I had my final dress fitting during the week, and the dress was mostly done then, so it'll be ready to pick up on Wednesday.

I'm off work from Wednesday, and people start arriving from Wednesday so it'll be a pretty busy week! I've got booked in a haircut, massage, fake tan and nails done for throughout the week so I'll be VERY busy :-)

Now, the hen's night. It was a LOT of fun! I had a gorgeous long silver gown that belonged to the mother of one of the girls from work, a bright pink wig, long colourful fake eyelashes and pink sequined shoes. Most of the other girls were also dressed in everything from just a wig with regular clothes, to full costumes. We had drinks at a pub, dinner at a Teppanyaki restaurant followed by more drinking and dancing. There may be photos available for public viewing at a later date if they pass my inspection. :-) I got home at about 3am (after being out since 5:30pm) and woke up at 7ish with a cracker of a headache and the room spinning. After an hour and a half of not sleeping I finally got up and had a couple of Nurofen Plus's and a big glass of water and finally got to have 2 more hours of pleasant sleep. Once I woke up I felt fine but gees I feel exhausted still!!! I don't know how people do this on a regular basis.

I highly recommend for anyone getting married to have the hens and bucks nights at least 2 weeks before the wedding. This weekend's really been a complete write off for the both of us (Andrew had his buck's night last night, which he also had fun at), and we really needed to get things done this weekend! Oh well.

So, one week to go. This time next week we'll be married. Hmmm, does that mean I have to change my blog address??? I think we'll both be pleased when our lives can settle down to some state of normality again.

You really want to disappear into blogland, heh, how am I going to find you if you change your address?

Sounds like fun, I wish I could've seen you! Pink and silver go great together!
